just remember that unless all of your memory is the same or paired in the correct slots you may not get your double data rate...

:D

Yeah it is good. I went for it coz of the overclocking capabilities, got my 2.4 running at 3Ghz. Everyl little helps esp with 3d rendering and video editing, altho should be great now with the memory upgrade. 3ds max hasnt got any faster tho looking at the render times :( Altho system is much better at multi tasting obvisully

With 3D rendering you wont get much improvement simply by Oc'ing your FSB and CPU.... You HAVE to OC your video card as well... even if it is an AGP card it will only go as fast as it is told too, so the more processing power the GPU has, the faster things will get rendered... and the overflow will be faster since you overclocked your cpu and fsb..

a) Press Pause on bootup screen will tell you if your current memory config allows dual memory access.
b) Same info can be had in Mobo handbook under memory configuration.
